Dr. Birch received a B.Sc. in molecular and genetic biology, graduating summa cum laude from Dartmouth College in 1994 and earned a masters degree in Classics from St. Johns College in 1999. She became a Doctor of Oriental Medicine in 2000, after a traditional three year apprenticeship and four years of schooling at Southwest Acupuncture college, where she received the academic award for excellence, and did post graduate work in gynecology, oncology, and pediatrics.
Upon graduation, Dr. Birch directed the Center for Holistic Therapies at the Life Healing Institute, a trauma and rehabilitation facility in Santa Fe N.M. By working with people whose boundaries had been so transgressed, she came to realize the limitations of the penetrating nature of acupuncture needles. She spent the next four years studying energy fields, light healing, and chakra restructuring at the Barbara Brennan School of Energy Medicine and six years studying the Acutonics® System of Sound Healing.
Dr. Birch is certified in the diagnostic method of VoiceBio which maps the bodies frequencies as expressed in the "voice print". She is a Michael Harner trained shamanic practitioner, a certified Yoga instructor, and practices Peter Levine's trauma relief methodology: Somatic Experiencing. She is the creator of the neuro-emotional harmonization process called 5th-ing™ and after studying with Gabriel Cousens in Live food nutrition, she is training to be a nutritional coach for Brain Optimization™.
